Corporate and M&A

A&L Goodbody is the leading Corporate practice in Ireland. In each of the last seven years we have advised on more M&A deals (ranked by Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg and Experian Corpfin) in Ireland than any other law firm as well as advising on the most significant share of the equity capital market transactions. Our Dublin and Belfast teams provide an integrated service across the island of Ireland. We advise domestic and global corporations, individual shareholders and entrepreneurs, sponsors and lenders, investment banks, private equity providers, state and semi state entities.

We are the market leaders on both domestic and international transactions:

Our domestic M&A expertise spans all sectors in the Irish market, from the most complex, high profile to the everyday. We act on both large and small transactions for sellers, buyers and investors providing technical and strategic advice on issues relating to the life cycles of all types of transactions, from shareholder agreements, to option plans, to M&A transactions for private and publicly listed companies.

The team has a reputation for providing innovative solutions and pioneering deal structures to global clients. Our New York and San Francisco offices are led by Corporate partners who together with our other offices ideally position us to advise on complex, cross border deals that come to Ireland.
